Excel falsely reports "cannot open or save any more documents because there is not enough available memory or disk space"
article #994, updated 1221 days ago

There are many situations in which a recent version of Excel will report that there is not enough available memory or disk space, where there very clearly is. To knock this one out, go to File menu and Options, click Trust Center on the left, click Trust Center Settings… on the right, and then Protected View on the left. Uncheck everything in there, and OK all the way out. Close Excel and try it again. Problem eliminated.
